Freedom & Overcoming Our Barriers 1, 2 and 3 was made over the duration of a year between 2012 and 2013. The project was developed through many stages and followed many different processes and exhibition in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015.
This work is the creation of a “space of freedom”, a place for reflection for everyone who wishes to visit and would like to leave their own messages. A place to express their own feelings about any subject and particular thoughts relating to our freedom and overcoming barriers in our life. My desire is to encourage people to participate in expressing art in personal and active way on my canvas, paper and clay with questions: I Am Free. Am I Free? I believe that often we do not possess real freedom because we build a prison for ourselves with attitudes that have been passed down to us, often without realisation. All messages and reflections will be used in my artwork.
…Lack of freedom has been the source of constant suffering throughout the centuries. People have died for freedom and made great sacrificies to preserve it. It is the most valued right of human existence…
